TROY, Mich. (AP) — More than 1,000 pounds of ground beef are being recalled in suburban Detroit after federal officials linked it to salmonella in Michigan and Arizona.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the beef is being recalled from Troy-based Gab Halal Foods and Sterling Heights-based Jouni Meats. Officials said Friday that seven people became ill after consuming raw kibbeh (kib-BEH'), a Middle Eastern dish, at a Macomb County restaurant last month.

Federal inspectors say the beef was produced between Dec. 4 and Dec. 10 and distributed to the restaurant. The government says it also was sold without labels to customers at both stores.

Jouni Meats owner Khalil Jouni tells the Detroit Free Press his shop is clean. Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and vomiting and can be life-threatening.
